How to Sang a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale!

The Coterie Theatre

The Coterie presents Mesner Puppet Theater’s world premiere production of How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale. Recorded live at The Coterie Theatre in Kansas City, MO. How to Snag a Sea Monster is an endearing adaptation of the American folktales of Stormy Stormalong, with the story told through inventive puppetry. Perfect for families with ages four and older and virtual school field trips for Grades K-4th.

In How to Snag a Sea Monster, after a monstrous wave washes a creature ashore, the people of a small Cape Cod town hear it wailing. What they initially fear might be a sea monster, turns out to be a baby as big as a house. The village adopts the giant baby, whom they name Stormalong, or ‘Stormy’ for short, but growing to over 24 feet, Stormy struggles to fit in, and eventually chooses a life at sea aboard a clipper ship to find a place in the world. Meanwhile, when a bullying sea monster, the colossal kraken, does come to torment the village… only Stormy is big enough to save them all!
